How does one go about changing the name of the street their house is on? (United States)

We are one 5 houses on our cul-de-sac, and all 5 households believe the name should be changed.
All we want to do is change the first letter of our current street name to make a totally different word. Our current street name is a short word that, although not vulgar or obscene, is just a weird word to name a street.
It’s not hyperbole when I say we live on “Suck Avenue”. We want to change it to “Duck Avenue” That is the size and extent to which we want to change it.
We live in a small (less than 500), rural township so small that we don’t have our own post office. We use the post office of our slightly-bigger (about 3000) town a couple miles down the road on our mail and as our “official” address.
What first steps should we take in getting the ball rolling? Who do we call or contact first? The post office? The county? The State? Garmin? Mapquest?
P.S. There is only 1 street sign, and we are totally willing to pay for its replacement ourselves.
